sue powell: For Ray Smith

Hi Ray, Good to 'meet' you. I'm in Newport area, but love going to gigs in Yorkshire coz I get a free holiday with my best friend. Not only get to see Steve, but the Yorkshire moors and abbeys too! Good to know that the fan club Cymru is alive and well though. Cheers.

Hi Sue, more Harley fans here in South Wales :-) Where are you?

sue powell: Old fan, New user

Hi everyone, Finally got around to logging on (bit of a luddite, I'm afraid). Just really wanted to say that I've been a huge fan since 1975, but more than that, to try and explain exactly what that means. The man and his music have been the soundtrack to my life, through births, deaths, marriages, jobs, houses, kids (and now grand-kids!)- always there has been Steve Harley. No idea how I would have survived adolescence without him, and I can't begin to list the countless hours of pleasure, joy, comfort and inspiration that I've had over the years. I was turned on to classical music by Ravels Bolero - I have met so many great people - and I was inspired to go out there and perform myself for a while. In short, the course of my life and part of the person I am today is directly dwn to Steve and his music - And that is an AWESOME gift to give to a total stranger! 37 years on, I'm still waiting to meet the man to say thanks. Looking forward to Brum, and Pocklington in December, I'm in South Wales, but my best friend and gig-buddy lives in Yorkshire. P.S. Big thank-you to Jimbo for the plectrum which he caught and gave to me at the Duchess in York last December - I.O.U!

joanna: Mr Walker plays Mr Harley Sunday 1608

Thank you Mr Johnny Walker (again) for cheering my day at 1608...MMS . I let out a 'YEAH" after the news break in the car. He had a couple of cheeky things to say too.. I tried to text into the programe to say THANK YOU but he was interviewing Mr D Cassiday ,perhaps he got the text and was being discreet I appreciate the timing must be tight too... (sorry David no comparison....and to think I had your pics on my bedroom wall at that time...oh dear. NO, no comparison at all....I have seen the light , the light Cheers jo"

julie morgan: Mrs

Hya Steve/Rachel, Just a line to say what a fantastic, fan focused website. I have really enjoyed following Steve's diary, especially his last entry on the 6th his garden truly sounds idyllic. Its also been great to follow all his successes and experiences on tour since he kindly nominated the charity that I work for - Cancer and Polio Research Fund to be one of the recipients of a donation from his appearance on Celebrity Mastermind. We would be honoured to work with Steve, if you could get in touch to discuss that would be fantastic. Julie Morgan Community Fundraiser (and fan!) Cancer and Polio Research Fund

Hobo With A Gin.: Birmingham.

I hope that if the Birmingham show isn't going to be filmed that it doesn't mean sitting behind the hoardes who 'have' to film things on their devices, rather than enjoying the moment. I can still picture in my mind the first gig I saw on the 'Best Years..' tour in '75. Even after years of smoking *things* which have dimmed a lot of my memories.

Relled: Brum DVD

Really enjoyed reading Steve's latest diary entry. Just a thought about the proposed Birmingham show DVD. A new documentary about Graham Parker & The Rumour by film maker Micheal Gramaglia is soon to be released and for the most part its been financed by us fans.This is done through "Kickstarter" where you can pledge an amount of money to help get the movie made, with rewards (ie named in credits, T-shirts posters etc) depending on how much is pledged.I have received mine already and I get a real buzz knowing in my small way I helped to make this possible.Knowing Harley fans out there are just as passionate as the Parker ones I'm sure a similar deal with Kickstarter would solve any financial problems that producing a great big lavish film of this historic event might bring. The whole show to watch over & over now that would be something! (Johnny)

RachelPAtoSH: Ducks Update

Steve just called to say, as an update to the latest diary entry: "Incredible sight in my garden. Mother Mallard and eleven (ELEVEN!) chicks - and they are all a few months old, so large enough already to escape the average predator. Picking at the bird seed on the lawn. What a sight!"

rebelfreak1: Diary entry

Great new diary entry,reading that is better than watching springwatch on the beeb! Also interesting comments re dvd/cd releases.We as fans obviously want anything and everything,but its never going to happen is it? As ever I will buy whatever is released,to be honest there would be a few that would complain if the quality was not what we have all come to expect,lets leave it to Steve's people to decide,and accept those decisions. Jimbo.

RachelPAtoSH: Live

Dear All, The Live CD plan was stalled because Steve wasn't happy with the recordings. They were made on hard-disc from the Live mixing-desk and he felt they lacked atmosphere. A brilliant DVD exists from The Indigo2 show and that may be released.

Michael Carraway: LEO - help please!!

It's great to see Leo urging support for Steve, but I need a bit of help with it! The website doesn't seem to "Translate into Engl;ish" and I can't see any obvious link to the voting system. I want to vote. Any advice?

Monday, 07 May 2012

leonacht: Vote for SH in Belgium !!!

For those people who are interested ; Belgian national radio 1 is making a top 100 of the worlds best classics . Go to the website ( you don't need passwords or other steps to make ). Just fill in your top 5 and make at least that SH&CR are mentioned once with one ' classic hit ' like Sebastian or Make me smile . Shoot him as high as possible in that hit-chart . It would be a wonderful promotion and publicity in view of his performances in Belgium later on this year ! Thanks for your cooperation . Subsidairy question is ; how long in meters & decimeters will be the total distance of the CD boxes or vinyl discs form the 100 songs . == Enjoy your sunday evening . Leo for L&S
